Following a rollercoaster 18 months, Ariana Grande has poured ‘Sweetener’ into the musical landscape.
The set, which serves as her fourth studio offering, is her first body of work since the 2017 bombing that took place at the Manchester stop of her ‘Dangerous Woman Tour.’ An incident that saw 22 lives lost.
